    Howdy, ya'll. Being new I guess I have to say hello, so hello.

    On the note at hand, I was wondering if any of you have ever heard of/fired/owned a .357 Rhino revolver? I saw one down at the local specialty arms dealer in town and have never seen one before. I was impressed with the design. An over-under with the barrel on bottom. They had a snub and a standard. The snub was very impressive considering how small it was for so much power. Had to tell someone. Any input would be great.

    The barrel is indeed on the bottom and supposedly the recoil is similar to a .38 without any loss in stopping power of the .357 magnum. The is supposed to be fairly accurate. The hammer I've heard is pretty difficult to pull back because the spring is very strong.

    Yes, sir. They had mentioned that point about the hammer. I would love to get one on a range course and tear it up.

    Me too. I've heard they are a lot of fun. My buddy said the .357 mag kicks like a 9mm.

    If that is true than it is a fantastic weapon.

    That's what I said. I'm not sure how true it is until I try it myself but the guy who shot it said it is unbelievable. He said with the barrel being underneath it is more of a push back then a snap recoil.

    That's what I was thinking. All the weight is on top. Great design for a pistol.

    It would definitely be a fun gun to shoot.
